and his name was barack obama. four years later he is president, he became president of the united states. what are your ambitions? >> well, you know, it is very flattering but i don't put myself in the same league with president obama. >> he is quite a unique talent. i am going to be mayor of san antonio as long as the voters will have me. my tenure would end in 2017 so i will be there and run for reelection and be there, if i do a great job then i will look around and see what is possible, of course the challenge is that we are in texas, texas is very red state, we have 29 statewide offices and it is 29 to zero in terms of republicans and democrats, so we will see. we will see. >> joaquin, part of what we learned in your brother's speech last night was that your grand jury immigrated from mexico. >> right. >> never got past the fourth grade, both of you went to stanford and have law degrees from harvard. how did that happen? you know, our grandmother and everybody in our family worked very hard, so that we could have the very best opportunity possible and, you know, as julian told the s
barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own time in the white house. but another speech tonight could make or break the democrats' hope for keeping control of the united states senate. elizabeth warren is challenging republican senator scott brown in massachusetts. coming up in this hour, we'll hear praise of bill clinton from someone you might not expect. >> coming from the republicans, vice presidential candidate paul ryan sat down with cnn's piers morgan to compare the clinton and obama presidencies. the two presidents have not always been close, obviously. our chief national correspondent john king covered the clinton white house for us. >> these two presidents, the former president and president obama are more than at peace now. you may say both men share a little bit of numbers

public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
